Kelly Clarkson became a household name after she won the first ever “American Idol” title back in 2002.
Now after 18 years and several albums later Clarkson still manages to find ways to connect with the American audience. She’s currently on the panel of judges for “The Voice” and also hosts her own show “The Kelly Clarkson Show”.
Kelly Clarkson’s Net Worth is $45 Million in 2020
As of 2020, Kelly Clarkson’s annual salary is estimated to be somewhat around $14 Million. Her net worth is somewhat around $45 Million.
Even though it’s been 18 years since Clarkson appeared on American Idol, her net worths seem to be only growing with time. This is mostly due to an extraordinarily long-lasting music career and because of her involvement in ‘The Voice’ since 2014, where she was also the highest-paid judge.
There were speculations that the 38-year-old songwriter’s net worth might see a fall since the news of her divorce came a few weeks after Clarkson and her husband Brandon put their LA mansion up for sale.
But this did not take any significant toll on her net worth as most of her income is attributed to her appearance as a judge on ‘The Voice’. Apart from that her net worth also includes profits from real estate investments that she made along with Blackstock.
Clarkson has also published numerous children books. Therefore sales from those books also contributes to her overall net worth.
Life and Career after American Idol
After American Idol went on to sell a record number of albums. Her debut single “A Moment Like This” topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2002. This was followed by a series of chart-busting singles and albums like Thankful (2003), Breakaway (2004), Stronger (2011), Meaning of Life (2017), and many more.
To this date Clarkson has sold over 25 million albums and 45 million singles worldwide. 28 of her songs have been on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. She has also won numerous awards for her songs including 3 Grammys.
Clarkson started dating her former talent manager’s son Brandon Blackstock in 2012. A year later she married Brandon who is also a talent manager. Together Clarkson and Brandon have four children.
Everything seemed to be perfect until Clarkson filed for divorce in June this year. She cited the reason for divorce to be due to “irreconcilable differences”.
